- Make sure you have a MirrorLink enabled phone & car
- Download LG MirrorDrive from the PlayStore
- Open LG MirrorDrive from the cars head unit (sometimes it takes several tries before it tries to open)
What this does:
Because the application is meant to work with only LG phones, when you attempt to open it with a non-LG phone, it will automatically close and give you a toast message saying "LG MirrorDrive only works with LG phones that support MirrorLink." This brings you to the last screen you had open on your phone before you connected it to your car, and you now have the phone fully mirrored on to the screen, with touch control.
This means you can use Google Maps, Waze, or whatever your favorite maps app is, without having to pay $80+ for a MirrorLink GPS navigation app.
The reason I say it's mostly working, is because once your phone is mirrored, when you open any app it kicks you out of the mirrored screen, and you have to go back and click on LG MirrorDrive again to re-enable mirroring. Which is a minor inconvenience compared to having google maps working IMHO.
I personally have a 2015 Honda Civic Si and a Galaxy Note5 (not rooted), but others have confirmed it working with other Honda cars with similar head units, and other Samsung phones.
Because of how this works, I'm assuming it works with any head unit that has MirrorLink and any phone that is not an LG and has MirrorLink 1.1

I'm also using Nova Launcher, which allows the home screen to rotate into landscape.
Don't forget to post your results if you try it out, whether it works or it doesn't.
